My name is Paul Baker. I’m the Estates Manger here at Tewkesbury School. Tewkesbury School is a large secondary school serving the local Tewkesbury area with 1,400 students and 200 staff.
The Headteacher identified a need to enhance the students’ outdoor social areas. Through gaining funding, we were able to look at different designs for the outdoor canopy concept. Communications with A&S Landscape went the extra mile. A&S Landscape viewed the areas we had in mind and were able to design how the canopy would look in these different areas.
Having identified exactly what we wanted, A&S Landscape were extremely competitive to the like-for-like quotes we had for our project. We chose A&S Landscape based on the quality and time put into the project before we placed this order.
It was a complete project where A&S Landscape helped through the planning application to enable us to realise this project. Through the design stage A&S Landscape consulted, with greater working out, solutions for any problems we came across. Throughout the planning application A&S Landscape were of huge assistance.
Communications with A&S Landscape could not have been better. We were kept abreast of every step of the project and had regular updates for this project. A&S Landscape staff who when carrying out the work, were very amenable to our request for access across the site. They showed extensive knowledge regarding the installation.
Since the canopy has been installed, we have seen the number of students mixing and interacting with each other increase, giving them a social space to be proud of. Throughout the warmer months, we have seen community groups utilise it as a base for their extracurricular activities.
In considering the color of the canopy, we need to keep within our school color scheme. Luckily the colors available from A&S Landscape match and we are very happy with the way the canopy looked here at Tewkesbury School.
When choosing the canopy, we wanted to ensure the canopy was robust to withstand the day-to-day wear and tear the canopy may get. A&S Landscape advised us to use their aluminum guttering system that they included in the standard. A&S Landscape have a simple process where you are kept informed and consulted when decisions are needed.
I am pleased to say that we wouldn’t hesitate to go back and use A&S Landscape for any further work with the school estate. I highly recommend A&S Landscape if you are considering a similar project.
